Marie Curie: The Courage of Knowledge may test the patience of some viewers with its deliberate pacing, but this sensitively made biopic has its well-acted rewards.

Curie deserves the recognition and there's an honourable attempt to colour in the historical context with references to the Dreyfus affair and the political state of play in turn-of-the-century Europe.
Honestly, you'd be better off finding the MGM version from 1943.
"Marie Curie" gets the look right - the costumes, the re-creation of early 20th century Parisian streets and classrooms. But the film is lifeless.
A Schubert-esque score and an extremely pretty, dappled cinematography make Marie Curie a compelling portrait of an undeniably important woman.
Noelle fills the story with passion, debate and human contradiction. If the material ultimately eludes the director's grasp, wandering off on unfocused tangents, it's because of its ambition.
Karolina Gruszka is very good as Curie, conveying a mix of intelligence and romantic impulse; unfortunately no one else in the cast comes close to her level of investment.
It is the sort of film that manages to incorporate languid baths and a duel (!) with obtuse conversations with Einstein and an overt feminist message.
... biopic of a French icon that's beautifully photographed, sensitively acted and punishingly dull.
A fascinating life is reduced to a series of skittishly edited and visually stylised vignettes that do scant justice to Marie Curie's scientific achievements and Karolina Gruszka's laudably intense performance.
A standout performance from Karolina Gruszka elevates this exploration of grief and love, giving breath to the life of a true pioneer.
With more sexy baths than any movie about a male scientist has ever seen, this biopic undermines the battle Curie fought to be taken seriously that is depicted here.
... what does the Marie Noelle film offer that dozens of other biopics have not already given us, especially those made in Europe? Well, not too much... [Full review in Spanish]
